Steve - 
    If we do not lock the resources but do add the old network Admin/Tech contact info to 
    the organization record, then a very large number of these blocks have the potential to 
    be readily hijacked – one simply would have to register the domain name and setup 
    email for any defunct organization, and you could readily transfer the addresses
    (despite having no association whatsoever with the original registrant…)

    Some in the community would view that consequence as an unacceptable tradeoff – 
    what is your thoughts on it?
